Static Decay Meter

Model 4406 Static Decay Meter


The ETS Model 4406 Static Decay Meter, which replaced the previous generation Model 406, utilizes patented technology to meet the requirements for static charge dissipation and static decay rate testing as required by the Department of Defense (DOD) and various industry test standards. A variety of electrode configurations are available which enable the static dissipative characteristics of film, fabric, foam, plastic, glass, paper, liners, formed parts (non-flat), nonwovens, bags, mats, cellulose, carriers, tote boxes, dispensing equipment, garments, tables, consumer products, seating, flooring and many other materials to be evaluated for electrostatic characterization.

The Model 4406 can be used for static decay analysis in R&D (Research & Development), QC (Quality Control) and other applications to test materials where static electricity can impact performance, production, manufacturing, handling, appearance, safety and personnel comfort.

  • Measure the static decay rate of static dissipative material for ESD safe applications
  • Microprocessor based operation
  • 0.001 second decay time resolution
  • Automatic and manual test modes
  • Variable cutoff levels
  • System test module for verifying system operation
  • Optional: Environmental Chamber

Meets the requirements of military and industry standards including:

  • MIL-STD 3010C, Method 4046 (2013)  Static Decay Test
  • NWSP 040.2.R0 (20)  Electrostatic Decay of Nonwoven Fabrics published by INDA and EDANA
  • NFPA 99 (2018)

Other related standards:  MIL-PRF 81705E, NFPA 77, ANSI-ESD S541, ISO 139
Previous standards: FTMS 101C, Method 4046.1, CECC 00015, INDA IST 40.2
